Despite a rather impressive 4-0 victory over Burnley last weekend, Tottenham’s league form in recent weeks has been nothing short of terrible, with Jose Mourinho’s side winning three and losing five of their last eight Premier League fixtures – results which have left the club languishing down in eighth place in the league standings.
As a result, much has been discussed about Mourinho’s future in north London, with RB Leipzig manager Nagelsmann being touted as a potential successor to the 58-year-old, should he indeed get the sack.
However, speaking on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, Romano claimed Tottenham are not the only side interested in the German coach, suggesting that it will be an incredibly difficult task for any club to land the 33-year-old.
He said: “At the moment we can say that, obviously, the situation with Tottenham wasn’t so easy on the pitch until some days ago, so we had immediately rumours talking about other managers and a lot of rumours about Nagelsmann.
“I want to say about Nagelsmann – a lot of clubs are interested in Julian Nagelsmann. Really, a lot of clubs. So, many clubs involved in the race and it won’t be easy to have Nagelsmann on your bench next season – to all clubs, not just Tottenham.”
Should Nagelsmann replace Mourinho?
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Julian Nagelsmann…
Considering the fact that Nagelsmann guided Leipzig to a third-place finish in the Bundesliga as well as the semi-finals of the Champions League in his first season in charge of the club, alongside his team currently occupying second place in the German top-flight standings this term, it is not overly surprising to hear that a great number of clubs are keen on signing the manager.
Although, despite Tottenham’s below-par performances in the league so far this season, it has been reported that Daniel Levy maintains a significant level of trust in Mourinho, meaning that, despite the rumours, there is a possibility that Tottenham may actually not be in the race to sign Nagelsmann to begin with.
